Windows 7: Your opinions on this motherboard

Your opinions on this motherboard

Newegg.com - ASUS P8Z77-V PRO LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

I am thinking about buying this Asus board, the P8Z77V Pro for my newer PC, which currently has an Asus P8p67 Deluxe installed in it right now, which I would then move to my older PC. I would appreciate any opinions on this board and any other recommendations fro another brand name would be welcome. Thanks in advance for your help!

It's a good board. Is there anything special you need for that computer, such as eSATA, etc?

Hi Kelly. Yeah, I use both eSATA and USB 3 all the time.

I didn't check the manufacturers website, but I don't think that has a eSATA port, if that is something you will be needing.

Thanks for that! I will have a look and see.

Just checked and it does come with a two port eSATA/USB 2.0 module.

Looks like a good board,

Motherboards often arrive with one problem or another. People seem to be having problems with newegg and motherboard RMA of late.

Amazon has a really good return policy - I returned an Asus Motherboard that developed a fault within a week, no questions asked. They shipped me a new board and gave me 30 days to return the faulty one after I received the replacement. Anyhow, I don't think you would get that kind of service from newegg. Just a thought.

Thanks for your input Gene. I have bought quite a bit of hardware from NewEgg, but have never had to send anything back yet, so I wasn't aware that they had problems with customer service. That is good to know.

I had some issues with my first Asus Sabertooth motherboard and two Intel 520 SSD's and I could not have asked for Newegg to be any better with RMA and returns. They even sent me an email on the Samsung 830 I ended up getting for a few dollars off right after I got off the phone with the guy. I sent back the mobo and SSD together, got a new mobo and SSD, had to send that SSD back, and got the Samsung, all in about 2 weeks. I was up and running in a relatively short time thanks to their CS. I guess their CS is hit and miss just like all other companies out there.

Thanks Kelly! The only time in all the years I have owned computers that I had to send something in for repair, was my HP Laptop, which developed bad sectors on the HDD and the LAN port went bad. HP customer support was awesome in fixing my laptop and getting it back to me in about a week. But I have the Pro Books, which is the business addition and I have heard the support is better than for the regular consumer.

It is definitely better than regular customer service. I think I hate dealing with HP support over anybody else! I have never dealt with their business support though.
